New Jersey Statutes, Title: App.A, EMERGENCY AND TEMPORARY ACTS

    Chapter 9: Removal of member of local defense council

      Section: App.A:9-57.14: Process of claims; investigation of claims; rules and regulations; employees; payment of benefits

           It shall be the responsibility of the local defense council or the district or regional office of the Director of Civil Defense, as the case may be, to process all claims for which notice is received pursuant to this act. Such claims must then be approved by the chairman of the local defense council before they are submitted for final approval to a Claim Committee consisting of the Director of Civil Defense, the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance, the Commissioner of Labor and Industry, the State Auditor and the State Treasurer, or their duly appointed representatives. This committee or its duly authorized representative may investigate any and all claims for benefits under this act and shall make a final determination of the benefits to be paid or allowed to any claimant. For the purposes of this act such committee shall have the power to make, amend, modify and repeal rules and regulations for the processing, review and determination of claims, and to select and employ such clerks and assistants as may be deemed necessary and to fix and determine their powers and duties; and the committee may also, in its discretion, arrange with any domestic carrier or carriers to investigate any or all such claims and to liquidate and pay such claims as are valid. The committee shall from time to time authorize the State Treasurer to pay from the special fund for civil defense volunteers any benefit or other amounts due hereunder and to reimburse such carrier or carriers for benefit payments so made together with reasonable allowance for the services so rendered.
